As long as "for profit" is balanced with competition, it works out pretty well. The best providers, the most efficient providers, and the cheapest providers win out. The problem is that government regulations (HPPA anyone?) and insurance interfering with supply/demand laws have removed all effective competition. It's now a "for profit" with zero competition.
The fact that our medical system is "for profit" is the only reason the newer miracle treatments exist.
